Traveling a bumpy road!

So much has happened to me since I started SP April 9th 2010. I've lost weight of course and regained some, I've learned to stop eating when full and I've made some great spark friends. I'm sparking much of the time. Many know about my son's accident (6/17/2010)and the changes that has wrought on my life, my sister Véronique's death (11/7/2012) due to a brain tumor and Vicky's congestive heart failure, diabetes and a host of other problems. I also have been blessed with a new grand-daughter ...

I try to keep smiling and stay positive-not always easy, but the good Lord helps. I love life from infancy to old age.
I retired May 25th, 2012.
My 5 children and 6 grandchildren are an important part of my life.

With the exception of my cholesterol levels and a mobile blood pressure I am relatively healthy. Both my son's care and my weight contribute the occasionally elevated blood pressure. My cholesterol has been high since I was in my 40's and I am allergic to statin drugs which limits what I can take for the cholesterol problem. (I am in gray in the first picture, and turquoise in the second)

Member Since: 4/9/2010

SparkPoints: 71,642

Fitness Minutes: 68,908

My Goals:
1. track all of my foods, striving to get 5-8 fruits & veggies per day.
2. I will walk no LESS THAN 5,000 steps and work my way past 10,000.
3. to be more positive, and supportive to those around me, especially new widows.



My Program:
To watch what I eat, most importantly cutting back on cholesterol and sodium. Work to change a sedentary life into a more active life, which is difficult for me. Even though retired, I'm knitting and sewing more that makes for a still sedentary life.

Personal Information:
I was born in Bedford, Ohio of a Belgian mom and an American GI. I have lived in Belgium, Ohio, Florida and am currently in Georgia. I am widowed and have five grown children, one of whom had a traumatic brain injury June 2010 and for whom I am the court appointed Custodial Guardian.

Other Information:
I like to knit, sew-when I have time and play with my grandchildren.
I'd love to be able to travel again, to go back to Belgium and Austria, to see Ireland, Scotland, Switzerland and Italy.

My mom used to make apple butter in the crockpot. I started with a 3 gallon stock pot heaped full of apples cored & cut in 1/6 so I did not do mine in a crockpot. Too many apples! My neighbor told me she cooked hers down in a roaster in the oven so I tried that. It worked great so I will do that from now on.

Thanks so much Ginie...we are GOING to make it! I had let my "portions" get SO sloppy...thinking my body wouldn't notice! Who do we kid? Not our bodies for sure!

Hugs, sweetheart....we are going to do this together! Day 9 is on its way in!

I learned so much at the aging resource meeting. There's lots to consider -- so much that it makes my head spin. Right now we are just looking at getting some supportive or respite care for my step mom. We also need them to do a Power of Attorney for Finances -- can't believe it has never been done.

We want my folks to start going to senior citizen things. It'd be good for Dad to talk to other people and it wouldn't hurt my step mom. She's such a social butterfly though conversation works better on some days than on others.

Merci pour ta gentillesse chère Ginie ! Oui, je serai prudente, notamment d'utiliser désormais toujours des parcours de randonnée de toute confiance. C'est trop dangereux de se perdre en période de chasse !!!

Demain la température va commencer à baisser un peu. Il faisait 25°C hier, c'était merveilleux, un temps d'été ! Demain il fera 17°C, ce sera bien encore et davantage de saison. Je n'ai pas envie que l'hiver arrive ! L'été a été si frais et pluvieux que j'ai l'impression de ne pas en avoir eu.

Je te souhaite une très bonne semaine... Prends bien soin de toi ! emoticon
